Atiku Promises Govt of National Unity, Restructuring in 2023

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, former Vice-President and Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has promised to install a Government of National Unity (GNU) and restructuring of the country if he wins the February 25, 2023 presidential election.

During an interaction with editors under the aegis of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) in Lagos, he promised to bring members of the opposition on-board his administration as part of efforts to create national unity in Nigeria.

He said his team already has a draft legislation on how to restructure the country while devolution of powers will naturally go hand-in-hand with resource control.

On the economy, the PDP presidential flagbearer again promised to liberalise the economy to empower the private sector to drive business and economic activities, privatisation of public enterprises and tax breaks to the private sector to build necessary infrastructure through concession.

He listed his 5-Point Agenda to include Unity, Security, Economy, Restructuring and Education.
